Surah Ale Imran (3:40,47,49) – Nature of Miracles





There are many miracles mentioned in this Surah (Chapter). These verses contain the miraculous birth of Hazrat Yayha when his father Hazrat Zakariyah was in old age and his mother was barren. On this miraculous birth Hazrat Zakariyah says, "My Lord! When shall there be a son (born) to me and old age has already come upon me, and my wife is barren?" (Surah Ale Imran 3:40). Angel replies to him, "Verily, Allah does what he pleases". Hazrat Yahya is called John the Baptist in the Bible. This is a miracle from Allah. An even greater miracle of Allah is the miraculous birth of Hazrat Isa (Jesus) without a father. His mother Maryam (Mary) said to Allah on receiving his son," My Lord! When shall there be a son (born) to I me, and man has not touched me?" Reply was," Allah creates what He pleases; when He has decreed a matter, He only says to it, be, and it is ".
(Surah Ale Imran 3:47)
This is another miracle of Allah. Miraculous birth of Jesus Peace be upon him is also mentioned in the bible (Matthew 1:18-25). Modern science tells us, there are many species that are born without a male intervention like the male bee. Such a thing happens in many lower animals by the will of Allah and by the will of Allah it happened in higher level specie like a human being where the male intervention gap was filled by the 'command' of Allah that is why Hazrat Isa is termed as 'spirit from Allah' in the holy Qur'an and the 'kalima' of Allah. Further more miracles of Hazrat Isa are stated in Surah Ale Imran (3:49). Hazrat Isa says to the people ," I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, that I determine for you out of dust like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird with Allah's permission and I heal the blind and the leprous, and bring the dead to life with Allah's permission and I inform you of what you should eat and what you should store in your houses; most surely there is a sign in this for you, if you are believers". Allah gives such miracles to his messengers so people can identify that they are the messengers of God. Miracles of Hazrat Isa and many other messengers have been mentioned in the Holy Quran as well as in the bible. People of Quraish demanded a miracle from the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) even. People expect the messengers of Allah to be somewhat different. Like the non-believers of Makkah said

"And they say: What is the matter with this Messenger that he eats food and goes about in the markets; why has not an angel been sent down to him, so that he should have been a Warner with him?"

(Surah Furqan 25:7)

Here the people of Makkah are demanding something supernatural, a miracle just to confirm that Hazrat Muhammad is a prophet.
